Jlin's Warrior vs Jazz game is streaming tonight->http://yesesprod.blogspot.com/p/channel-2.html
Looks like JLin is coming in to start the 2nd.
lin is in!!off the bat. AMAZING defense. a steal. lead the fast break and an assist!! that's my boi!
nice steal and dish for a dunk to a teammate by Lin
good offensive rebound. but had to rush a shot. then he beats up watson on the other end. dwill looking from the sidelines.. "who is this asian nasty asian kid?" lol
good d by lin again to stop the layup
Looks like Lin blocked that shot on that drive by Watson
lin got ran over by a train. took a charge. awesome job lin!
yea i think he stripped it but it went out of bounds. dwill is like, "damn, im glad he ain't guarding me!"
AWESOME!! another steal and a fastbreak AND1 !! dwill, "i'm glad he ain't scoring on me!!"
lin is a serious pest on defense. watson is known as a great defender for a point guard but lin is showing he is much better. a great layup by lin. he is on fiya!
kid is getting real comfortable out there. can't believe utah gives gordan hayward so much minutes and the warriors give lin so little. hayward is slow, lazy and not athletic or talented at all.
kid did some major damage in just 6 minutes. 2-3 shooting, 1 rebound, 2 steals, 1 block. sick
dwill is like, "damn i gotta play this kid now?!"
starters losing control again. smart needs to give this team another dose of the jeremy lin
lol...starters are doing just fine. Bench is doing just fine! stick w/ the rotation Smart, and this game is a win!
no. go with lin for the win
Stephen Curry is really struggling 0 for 6 from the field and he has 4 fouls in 1st half. Who is his replacement ? Charlie Bell of course, of course.Lin with 5 points in 6 minutes, 1 off reb, 2 steals and a block. But I wish he didn't get those 2 fouls so quickly.
radman, ellis, bell, williams, and wright wtf kind of rotation is that. great coaching smart
I believe Charlie Bell is in to defend Deron Williams. Bell's got a similiar bulk, so it should be a good defensive matchup for D.Williams.
Jeremy Lin as Honda's great drive for Comcast Sportsnet
Great game J. Lin, would've done even better if he got minutes in the second half. Smart should not bench players that are hot and playing shut-down defense.
Here are the highlights from today's game and the past two gameshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeGIGVKOs68
Wow back to back games and Jeremy Lin got in. Shocked, the warriors are actually playing well and the rotation is doing it's job. Great to see Lin get playing time! As always great defense from him. Offense still needs a little work especially that open J. But played crucial minutes and scored a few baskets!
sorry, that wasn't an open j. it was the shot clock winding down
Oh that wasn't it looked like he still had about 3 steps before the next defender. And should have still had the time to set and shoot the shot.
Looks like Smart is finally starting to learn how to use his bench players (besides when in a 25 pt blowout).It's not like Bell, BWright, Lin, and Udoh suddenly started lighting it up in practice or playing so well during their garbage time minutes that they "earned" their playing time. It's because Smart finally realized that he needs to use his bench. He finally figured out that playing your starters the entire game is not a feasible long term strategy. The starters can't sustain a high level defensive effort because it takes too much energy. Even if the bench players aren't that talented, they should still be able to give an all-out defensive effort. Defense is more about heart and effort than skill. This establishes a defensive tone, and allows the starters to play harder with reasonable minutes.It's just too bad that Smart didn't figure this out until over half the season was over. Even though the Warriors are hot now, I believe that they are too far behind to catch up to make the playoffs. Statistically, they currently have a 2% of making the playoffs.
jlins is freeing himself. he is bringing energy. sooooo much better than when i ripped his ass for playing like every other nba entitled...earl watson is supposed to be the dmaster? You see him? No Energy! You see jlin? Energy! Picking up 3/4 court. getting tips. defense creates offense. jlin is earning it now. bravo!
jlin should be traded. lakers perhaps. they need somebody with full of energy from bench.
Agree real. I've been saying all along, Smart needs to better utilize the bench. CBell has actually started 38% of his career before going to the Warriors averaging over 25 mpg. BWright has talent but has been in the dog house for over half the season. I think if he played his bench more from the start of the season they could have won a few more games. More importantly, the bench players, especially the young ones like JLin, would be further along in their development. At least he sees it now. Pretty obvious the bench guys play much better d.
lakers can use him the most. sorry GS, but jlin won't grow up with a "smart" coach. :)
Radio announcer (Tim Roye I believe) said that Lin is a physical and strong defender.Fitz: "Jeremy Lin, terrific minutes off the bench"Fitz: "Jeremy is owning the backup PG matchup"
Lin had a real strong game today. More of that and bye-bye DLeague, hello regular minutes.I like Fitz, but he kept giving the credit for plays to the wrong guy. On the first steal, he gave credit to Monta, and on his block of #11's layup, he credited DWright.In Marcus Thompson's tweets, he really seems to be impressed with Lin.
Missed the game but thanks to @anthony for the link. I got into a "discussion" a while ago about who is the most important person to Lin's career. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, but props should be given to Eric Musselman. At first I wondered why Jeremy wasn't starting for the Bighorns, but then realized that coming off the bench is a different style of play and now everyone can see his high energy level right from the start. Apparently Acie Law is almost back, it will be interesting to see what happens when he returns.
Go jeremy ! awesome playing.

Smart is learning how to coach. Today's lesson: There are 10, yes that's right 10 active players on the team .... Not 6.
doubt smart learned anything. with law out and curry playing like crap in that game, smart was forced to play the bench. as with the game vs hornets where the starting guards were getting killed early on so he had to play the back up guards along with the whole bench. remember, smart was the one who publicly put down the backup guards just so he can get his buddy law. and even before the season started, smart had already declared lin was not an NBA player. smart had basically implied that lacob's pick was bad and should leave the basketball decisions to him and the gm. smart placed himself in a jam now that lin is making good use of every little minutes he gets. noticed that even through lin played great in just 6 minutes, he was never given any more minutes while bell got 17 minutes. smart will continue to pull every stunt he can think of to limit lin's minutes. remember, lin has proved himself over and over that he was more than capable on the defensive end to lead the 2 unit to allow the starters some rest yet smart plays law who gives nothing to the team while losing points. this is the kind of coach smart is and i will never be fooled to give him any credit for a win. i still believe that lin didn't needed dleague to "improve" his game. i always felt that he had it but was never given a chance to show it. when lin came into the dleague, he instantly shot well from the very start. even coach musselman said lin's development was off the charts which to me implies that lin already had the tools but needed a chance to show it. i am glad that the warriors are starting to win but if that means that smart will get some credit for it and it ultimately saves his job as the warriors coach then i rather they lose.
